Panini readies top NFL Draft picks’ cards for Prestige


By Chris Olds | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

The names have been called, the jerseys have been made and there’s one thing left to do for Panini America as the NFL Draft continues.

Make the football cards.

Up first on the Texas-based company’s schedule is 2012 Prestige, which arrives in June with No. 1 pick Andrew Luck, No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III, No. 3 pick Trent Richardson and more. (Need an Andrew Luck checklist or OPG? Click here.)

But before the cards can be printed, they must be mocked up. The company unveiled a selection of cards on Thursday night as the Draft carried on.

See the first four … after the jump.
